Explore the Future of Mobility Robotics and Autonomous Technologies
Join us as we:
  • Tour the National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) at Carnegie Mellon University. The NREC is the epicenter for autonomous technology, offering world-leading expertise in autonomy, sensing, perception and machine learning
  • Explore how robotics and autonomous technologies are impacting innovation -- we’ll explore how the NREC develops mature robotic technologies from concept to commercialization for industries such as manufacturing, agriculture, energy and mining.
  • Review what it's like to travel and innovate at the speed of sound. Join five members of the CMU Hyperloop team as they share their competition journey.
  • Discuss emerging technologies, network with members and hear a market update. View full agenda.
Featured Speakers:
